United A320 Emergency At LAX

Thu Mar 29, 2001 5:39 am

Flight bound for Orlando from LAX (UAL100) took of at 9:20 and returned about 10:00 after a pressurization problem. I think there was 5 or so injuries. Any other info?

KCAL 9 News in Los Angeles just reported 6-10 minor injuries including bloody noses, headaches and earaches from the cabin pressure change. It was the first story with helicopters overhead and fire vehicles surrounding it.

I saw it on MSNBC, and they reported 7 injuries. MSNBC's source was KNBC-4 here in Los Angeles.
